Usain runs meeting record of 19.58 in Lausanne

Usain Bolt clocked a comfortable 19.58 seconds to take the 200 meters at the Lausanne Samsung Diamond League on Thursday (August 23). Bolt, who successfully defended his 100 and 200 meters titles at the London Olympics is running his first race since the Games.

 

Bolt who is fresh from his 26th birthday, ran a meet record. He led the field from start to finish and won ahead of Churandy Martina – 19.85 (national record – Netherlands); and a season’s best from Jamaican, Nickel Ashmeade – 19.94.

 

Bolt’s Racers Track Club team mates, Jason Young – 20.00, Warren Weir – 20.03 and Marvin Anderson – 20.60 were fourth, fifth and seventh respectively.

 

Next stop for Bolt is the Zurich event on August 30.

    Bolt strolled it as usual, and he was the main attraction of the night but the media are saying that blake has upstaged him on the night. Bolt should be careful that he doesn’t look at these races as just fun because maybe Blake is trying to do just that.

    well, a runner who runs the 200m in 20 seconds, passes every 10m in an average time of 1 second. If we consider that the first 10m can’t be passed in 1second, the last 10m must be much quicker then 1 second. Now, Imagine who fast must Usaine Bolt pass the last 10m when he finishes the race in 19.19!!!! WOW! awesome!
